In Regard to Trust

At you write in record to the open source code and the way that contributes to security,

"What that gives you, is the ability to either inspect and learn how Master Password works or to take this information to a professional (be it an academic, mathematician or payed developer) and have him do this for you."

Have any independent third party inspected/reviewed the code who could report back to us who either don't have the expertise or the ability to find and pay someone to do it?

Thanks much,

    There has been no official security third-party audit, though the code has been evaluated by many independent developers and ported several times. The algorithm has been seen and evaluated in detail by many external professionals.

    But there is currently no independent backing of the security of the algorithm. I do not have the financial capacity to afford such a review at this time.
